Hi I'm Barb

I grew up in Southern Utah, married and moved to northern Utah. I am a mother to six and a grandmother to 21. I am a Mormon.

About Me

I love being a mother and grandmother. We love to have our family come for dinners and holidays. I love to crochet and have made an afghan for each grandchild. I knitted a sweater for my husband and a daughter. I like to work in my garden, both vegetables and flowers. I love to travel and go camping. I worked for a major airline after my children were raised. I am enjoying retirement now.

Why I am a Mormon

My parents and grandparents were members of the Mormon church. I was raised going to church. I love the scriptures, the lessons in church and meeting together with family and friends at church. I love meeting new people and making new friends. I love my Savior, Jesus Christ and want to learn more about Him and His commandments. I want to serve him by serving others and assisting with anything the church needs me to do. When raising our family it was so important to teach our children and take them to church. Many answers came through prayers when we need help with decisions and guiding our children. The church has been a great influence in our lives.

How I live my faith

While I was raising my children I was active with Parent/Teacher Association. I loved being involved in my children's school classes. I volunteered to help the teacher in the classroom for each of my children. I volunteered as Secretary/Treasurer for the Parent/Teacher association one year. We held fund raiser projects and then bought some playground equipment and our husbands installed it. I have served young children and youth by teaching classes on Sunday and planning and carrying out activities during the week. I have served on many committees for dinners for women and adults for my church. I helped with fund raising for many charities. My husband and I are going to serve a church mission for the next 18 months.

How can we increase our faith in Jesus Christ?

my faith has grown through studying the scriptures, trying to find what Jesus wants us to do and then trying to do those things and live as He would have us live. My faith has grown because of church attendance and service that I have been able to give to those around me and those in need. Prayer has been very important in doing these things. By praying I have been blessed to know what I should do in raising our family and everyday life. Show more Show less
